The Clippers have officially waived center Moses Brown, the team announced today. Brown had been on a two-way contract, but reached his games-played limit when he was active for a 50th time on Thursday, as Law Murray of The Athletic notes (via Twitter).
Murray first reported (via Twitter) that the Clippers would cut Brown to free up his two-way slot. Agent Luke Glass tells ESPN’s Bobby Marks (Twitter link) that it was a mutual decision, since the 23-year-old was ineligible to play another game for the Clippers this season while on his two-way deal.
Brown appeared in 34 games for the Clippers, averaging 4.6 points and 4.1 rebounds in just 8.5 minutes per night. He served as a backup center behind Ivica Zubac, but wasn’t always a part of the rotation and slid further down the depth chart following L.A.’s trade-deadline acquisition of Mason Plumlee.
Brown, who is in his fourth NBA season, will have the ability to sign a standard or two-way deal with any team if he clears waivers on Sunday. He has previously spent time with Portland, Oklahoma City, Dallas, and Cleveland.
The Clippers now have two openings on their 17-man roster — one on their standard 15-man squad and one two-way slot.
